/me been wandering around something similar long time ago...

KDE 4.0.0 is a piece of software and it is a container of pieces of 
software, which is the same kind of KDE4... but then the set of all 
possible sets is contained in itself? :) Can't remember which famous 
mathematician had a hard time defining this problem, I think it was 
about first and second order logic, and in the end if you can put a 
container in itself then the logical results take a while to be 
computed... like forever :)

/me feels off topic and in need of a coffee, got a headache because of 
these containers...
